DECOMMITMENT

OFF THE BOARD

Jonathan Allen – OT – Dayton (OH) Dunbar: Allen committed to Cincinnati.

Khris Bogle – DE – Fort Lauderdale (FL) Cardinal Gibbons: Bogle flipped from Alabama to Florida in a somewhat surprising move after committing to Alabama at the All-American Bowl. He’s the #71 overall player in the class.

Jerrion Ealy – RB – Flowood (MS) Jackson Prep: Flowood, a former Mississippi State commit, was expected to go to Clemson but ended up signing with Ole Miss. He was a 5-star and the lone standout running back at the Under Armour All-American Game.

Kaiir Elam – CB – Palm Beach Gardens (FL) Benjamin: Elam committed to Florida.

Isaiah Foskey – DE – Concord (CA) De La Salle: Foskey committed to Notre Dame as a defensive end. Michigan had been looking at him as a tight end. Foskey is a former teammate of one-time Michigan tight end Devin Asiasi, who is now at UCLA.

Demarcus Griffin – CB – Charlotte (NC) Olympic: Griffin committed to Utah State.

Daequan Hardy – CB – Pittsburgh (PA) Penn Hills: Hardy signed with Penn State.

Adonis Otey – CB – Murfreesboro (TN) Blackman: Otey flipped from Arkansas to USC.

George Pickens – WR – Hoover (AL) Hoover: Pickens flipped from Auburn to Georgia. This was probably the biggest newsmaker of National Signing Day when the long-time Auburn commit picked the Bulldogs. He’s a 5-star and #24 overall in the class.

Matthew Pola-Mao – DT – Chandler (AZ) Chandler: Pola-Mao committed to Kansas State.

Garmon Randolph – TE – Jefferson (GA) Jefferson: Randolph committed to Baylor.

Jammie Robinson – S – Leesburg (GA) Lee County: Robinson committed to South Carolina.

George Campbell III, WR (Florida State): Campbell struggled once again with injuries, and when he was healthy, he played in seven games and ended with 4 catches for 42 yards on the year. Florida State went 5-7.

Shaun Crawford, CB (Notre Dame): Crawford missed the entire season with a torn ACL, the third ACL injury of his football career.

Tyrece Woods, Ex-Wolverine

Tyrece Woods

Belleville (MI) Belleville defensive end/defensive tackle Tyrece Woods decommitted from Michigan on Thanksgiving. Woods had committed to Michigan in the middle of August (LINK).

Air Force, Cincinnati, Fresno State, Temple, and a bunch of MAC programs had offered Woods prior to his committing to Michigan, and I would assume some other programs would try to jump on board to try to grab a former Michigan commitment. 247’s Clint Brewster had put in a crystal ball for Cincinnati just a few days before he picked the Wolverines, so maybe there’s some lingering mutual interest between Woods and the Bearcats.

On Michigan’s end of things, there are several other defensive line recruits already committed: DE Chris Hinton, DT Mazi Smith, DE David Ojabo, DE Mike Morris, and DE Gabe Newburg. Rumors are growing stronger that Ohio DE Zach Harrison is going to pick Michigan, while Indiana DE George Karlaftis could flip from Purdue if Boilermakers head coach Jeff Brohm leaves for Louisville (or anywhere else). Woods was Michigan’s lowest rated commit by far at #1685; the next lowest is LB Joey Velazquez at #984. The Wolverines now have 25 commits in the 2019 class.
